My research interest and area of expertise is in pediatric solid tumors, notably neuroblastoma, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors and rhabdomyosarcoma. I am interested in the systems biology of these tumors, identifying epigenetic factors involved in the control of oncogenic transcriptional networks. My goals are to identify combination therapies of novel inhibitors alone and with conventional chemotherapeutic agents that disrupt these complexes.
